...is to lose a child. My good friends/ neighbors just lost their little girl. She was a beautiful, sweet, smart 17 year old high school junior with a bright future ahead of her. She had the flu the last few days. Her dad is a pediatrician, and she was getting proper care. She was on tamiflu and had been feeling better. She even felt well enough to get up and shower.
Then her heart just stopped.
She got prompt emergency care, but they couldn’t revive her. There is no explanation. No consolation. Otherwise healthy kids shouldn’t be able to just die. But they do.
Hug your kids tonight if you have them and thank God for them. Maybe say a prayer for those who have lost theirs.
